On May 9, Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) claimed responsibility for the assassination of seven officers of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in southern Syria on May 6. The HTS-linked news agency Iba’a even released a photo of the attack on the mini van, which was carrying the SAA officers.

Syrian pro-government activists previously claimed that the Israeli intelligence agency Mossad had carried out the attack and said that the victims had beeen the operators of the S-200 air defense battery, which shot down the Israeli F-16 on February 10. However, these claims were proven to be false.

Local observers view еру HTS attack as a dangerous breach of the Russian-American ceasefire agreement, which was implemented in southern Syria in 2017. According to the observers, the attack proves that the Free Syrian Army (FSA) is allowing HTS to grow and operate in southern Syria.

Some pro-government activist argued that the assassination of the SAA officers will justify a possible large scale military operation in the eastern Daraa countryside by the SAA and its allies later this year. Previously, many sources said that the SAA will not be able to launch any attack in Daraa governorate because of the successful ceasefire there.

        But I’m not sure about Turkey, not really sure if it’s for real or whether or not the 4 of the (guarantors of Astana) have had any agreements behind the scenes.. as they had to play the same game as the US of ass.. And that would make the rest of the guarantors looked bador betrayed Syria. I’ll keep on cursing Erdogan if he goes the other way round.. finger crossed.. lol..!

    The cover story that HTS vermin carried out this attack, holds as much truth as a colander does water. We know there are Isra-hell-i Special Death Squads operating over the Iraqi border less than 80klms away. They would not leave such a critical op (assuming these soldiers were as was claimed) to hts. hts might be utilised as observers at different stages along the highway, although I’m sure a micro drone/s more likely. Again condolences to their families and friends……..

    The intel for this operation was probably provided by Mossad.

  • Vitex

    Whatever. HTS couldn’t organize a piss-up in a brewery. The “hit” has Mossad written all over it

    “Previously, many sources said that the SAA will not be able to launch any attack in Daraa governorate because of the successful ceasefire ”

    Will not be able? It’s not a matter of “being able” to do things, but of having the will of doing them.

    If the SAA does not launch an attack in this instance is because they respect the agreements they signed, since they aren’t neither jews or wahabists, or americans for that matter.

    In the end we ‘ll see how well it will turn for those powers that have based their policies on lies.
